The owner is looking to deal Jimenez. I think he is better the rest of the season than Latos and I added Kotchman for Pujols. Kotchman is a career 265 hitter and he is hitting 345. I think its a good deal. Is this a fair trade?

It is only a 1 year league. I dont see SD getting any better and Latos only does well at home. Ublado only does well on the road but I think its a good deal. Especially since Young is eligible for 1B, 2B, 3B, DH. I have a feeling the owner is not going to want Kotchman because he is already deep at 1B. Do you think switching Kotchman for Turner/Casilla blows the trade up or is it still debatable?
I like the deal too, especially getting Michael Young who's versatile with the position-eligibility. Latos may be huge come playoff time because of good matchups but a lot can happen before then. Ubaldo's a bit of a risk but he should right the ship. I'd jump on it.
